About Us

We care and inspire all of our members to be stronger than they were in their previous session

Our Story

All Core Gym is a newly built, 1,200 SM. Purpose built weight training facility situated in Galway City. Formerly known as ACS (All Core Sports Ltd), All Core Gym was founded 7 years ago and during that time we have been busy out in the field working with teams across many sports and individuals from county and province. All Core Gym has been three years in planning. We have visited some of the best training facilities in the world to identify best practice and facility design.

At All Core Gym, we do not believe in the ‘one size fits all’ policy. Every individual is a unique individual, with a different set of attributes, movement patterns and strengths. You do not need to have a heavy sporting background to achieve progress with us, and you do not need existing strength or fitness. You simply need to be willing to work, and to listen to advice given by our experienced coaches.

Who We Are

All coaches are screened and appropriately educated and accredited to current standard practices. Past ACS members can attest to this standard, as many individuals went on to represent their country, province and county. Our Strength & Conditioning coaches have experience with all levels of fitness and training. Our experts will evaluate present level of performance, short and long-term goals and functional ability to perform exercise selection and movement control.

About the man behind it...

Michael Horan

Why Coach? Why invest in health?

My interest in Sport goes deeper than just participation. For me there is one underpinning skill that influences betterment and that is good MOVEMENT.Good movement is a fundamental base requirement for developing good habits, which are essential in developing the young and also, in keeping our older generation engaged, energised and pain free.

My overall approach to effective coaching helps to;
Develop a mindset and behaviour that optimises personal betterment.
Deliver best practice and change in health and fitness
Create positive and lasting lifestyle changes for all participants.

With appropriate engagement, I continue to pursue and develop training systems that;
Help the young and old to progressively move Well,
Guide all participants on a training journey, to understand movement principles
Show the how, when and why poor movement can affect our daily activities.

By utilising simple strength & conditioning principals of training, I would like to see people thinking more critically and intelligently about exercise and help them set and achieve more realistic goals.
